THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 May 1846

THE ABORiG1NES. In our fourth page we publish an ap peal in favor of the Aborigines, from the pen of the Rev. Mr Ham, wifo designiies himself " Chairman of the Aboriginal Committee," (a Committee, by the way, of whose existence we were not till now aware). The condition of the Aborigines is truly one which is deserving the most serious attention of the community and if it could only be shown in what way the public could ameliorate their condition, we have no doubt that the opportunity would be eagerly embraced. We have heard a great deal about the success of Mr luckfield at Buntingdale, and of Mr Peacock at the Merri Creek, but even if both of the systems adopted by these teachers were universally followed, and (what is by no means pro bable) carried out with all the zeal and ability displayed by them, no permanent benefit need be anticipated. We cannot shut our eyes to the inevitable destiny of the Aborigines, - the incontrovertible fact, that the propagation of the race has ceased...

OCCUPATION LICKNSES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 May 1846

OCCUPATION LICENSES . The following pertinent and truthful remarks arc from the pen` of that able Ltatistical writer, Mr% Westgarth. They 'are addressed to the editor of the Herald, whose opinions on the subject are of a somewhat incongruous nature : Perceiving your remarks on several recent occasions in connection with the complaints of a number of squatters on this subjectf, I beg to trouble you with a few observations on the system at present adopted here by the local government of leasing sections of land by auction to the public, for the period of one year. Complaints of this system are now numerous and incessantly urged, and public meetings held at Melbourne and Goelong have protested strongly against its continuance. A large area of country in the counties of Bourke and Grant, marked out into sections usually of the area of one square mile respectively, is declared open to the public choice, under certain regulations. Individuals may select one or more of these sections, and ...

THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 May 1846

THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. SIR,--Your readers, who have looked at the religious world, are not unprepared for   the statement, and it is a matter of deep regret to those who honor and revere the institutions of our Fatherland, that the Geelong Presbyterian Church should be declining in public opinion. I should be the first to combat such a statement, were it made on a false or flimsy foundation, or did the decline arise from a cause that was likely to be removed; but when every day brings fresh evidence of its truth, and gives no hope that the apathy cha- racteristic of the Scottish Presbyterians in Geelong will be roused into activity, the words addressed to the Church of the Laodiceans are forcibly recalled to my memory, " So then because thou art neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth." The rising generation have peculiar claims upon the religious world. The period of youth, or, as it has ...

CAPE OTWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 May 1846

CAPE OTWAY. No less than two exploring parties have been or are about to be started by the government in the direction of Cape Otway. One party under the command of a Serjeant of the Native Police, has started from Lake Colac, to penetrate due south, with the view of discovering a dray track to the locality intended for the lighthouse, while another, headed by Mr Surveyor D. G. Smythe is to start from Geelong with instructions to pro- ceed along the coast from the Heads of the Barwon westward to Cape Otway, --and to make a complete survey, both geographical and hydrographical, of all creeks, inlets, and other natural features of the intervening country. We look forward to the accomplishment of these undertakings with great interest, as we think they are very likely to yield results of a most beneficial character. The neighbourhood of Cape Otway has hither- to been in a great measure a terra incog- nita, for although a few individuals have penetrated in various directions, yet from t...

THE PEEL MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 6 May 1846

THE PEEL MINISTRY. The London Mail of 24th December enters more at length into particulars and speculations respecting the resignation and re-instatement of the Peel Ministry, than any of its contemporaries. The following extracts are inteiesting: ' The causes of recent events have been variously stated, and, in the entire absence of authlentic informa tion on the subject, all manner of sur maises have of course prevailed. This and that question has been assigned as the real solution of the difficulty; but we incline to the better belief that,.however possible it is that some single question may have been the proximate cause of the dissolution of the Cabinet, there is enough in the altered tone of Sir Robert Peel's politics to have led, sooner or later, to a change. In fact, that the course of liberal legislation which the Premier had been anxious to take, as connected with the many matters of grave national importance which now press upon the country, was so far in advance of some ...

MELBOURNE CATTLE MARKET. Two hundred and forty-one fat cattle, one hundred and ninety lean, four teen dairy cows, and nine hundred and ten sheep have this week been sold in the market yards, at the different rates. Fat cattle have been plentiful, and quite equal to the demand, with prices much as in the end of the previous week, 10s. and 1Is. being still current for good beef. ?

EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 6 May 1846

EDUCATION.-The cohimunication in our last signed " Scrutator', has called forth a reply from the Rev. Mr Love. which will be r-ound In another column. We should feel grieved if any remarks in our paper, whether emanating'from ourselves, or from acorres pondent, should give rise to either personal or public animosity. If Scrutator's com munication was of the nature with which it is characterised, our fault, in giving it pub lication, was as great as his in writing it. An editor is responsible for all communica tions inserted by him; but not for the replies which such communications call forth. fie is not responsible, it is true, for the opinions of his correspondents, but he is for the temper and tendency of their re marks. It was, therefore, and still is, our impression that Scrutator's communication was free from malice, and was calculated to serve a good purpose It is easy for men holding a prominent position in society to rail against private individuals addressing communications...

MIURDER OF A ROMAS CATHOLIC BlISHOP.

About 10*30 the boat returned to the ship with three severely wounded, having been attacked by the natives. On getting the Bishop on deck, and his wounds examined by Mr Guior, we found there was no hope of his recovery, having re ceived four large cuts in the head, and all clean through the skull, so as to expose the brain.

To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 6 May 1846

To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. San,-Anonymous writers on subjects of science, literature, or politics, are al ways respected for the modesty which is understood, in such cases, to be the reason for withholding their names. But where reproach is wantonly cast upon all individual or a class, such writers are ever regarded as a sort of reptiles, to whose crawling and slimy level men of right principles and right feelings will not permit themselves to condescend. And it may be set down as an incontro vertible axiom, that the man who will take advantage of a fictitious name, for the purpose of shielding himself from merited castigation and retributive scorn, wears within his little body *a malicious heart, is utterly destitute of Christian charity, and knows nothing of generosity or manly courage, save by the name. But tile man who boldly censures what he conceives to be wrong, and subscribes his remarks with his real name, is respected, and however erro...
